Author Mindy Hardwick Muses about Writing

Fan Fiction

on August 6, 2009

You ask your students to chose a favorite story and rewrite an ending, or maybe write what happens before the story started. The students are using the author’s characters and setting. Can they publish this on-line? Is it plagiarism?

Ah…..you suddenly realize….this type of writing is called fan fiction!

For more about fan fiction, check out this interesting article from Library School Journal on Fan Fiction. Good information and food for thought!
